Saint Leo College 

Saint Leo, Florida 33574 

Volume XXIII 

Anew era. It was promised in 
speeches and vividly portrayed 
in color brochures. But in order 
to truly experience the fresh be- 
ginning which was enveloping Saint Leo campus, one had 
to be a student. Thus, as the early September sun beat a 
path for fall learning, old and newcomers were exposed to 
a genuine transition in Leo-Life. Landscaping was sched- 
uled daily, and flowers graced once-bare crevices. The 
library addition was finally initiated. Buildings received 
a renewed strength in the form of clean paint and clear 
windows. The College was changing internally as well — 
reorganization of position and priority in accordance 
with increasing structure occurred. There definitely ex- 
isted a feeling of "community" as students, faculty, and 
administrators joined the effort to enhance the unique 
qualities possessed by the College. The dawn of a new era 
had arrived, and recognition of this advent called for spir- 
ited applause . . .

^^^^^ when a student's worst nightmare 
wKEb materialized (term paper! term 

paper!). While many uncommon study and research sites 
immediately came to mind, the best place to discover that 
long-sought article or quiet refuge was still the College 
library. In order to accommodate a growing student popu- 
lation and a need for additional materials, the Saint Leo 
library underwent the initiation of a massive expansion 
project in fall, 1986. The $1.9 million progression planned 
to increase the original building's size two-and-a-half 
times to eventually maintain 150,000 volumes. 

Work continued steadily throughout the late winter 
months and eased quickly into early spring. Students 
watched in awe as brick facades were destroyed and al- 
most simultaneously reconstructed. The gears were fi- 
nally in motion, and as the drills roared, a soft, distant 
applause could always faintly be heard . . .

Pride and progress. Both came to 
Saint Leo in the form of Dr. M. 
Daniel Henry, the new president. 
Inaugerated on September 16, 
1985, Dr. Henry addressed ceremony participants and ex- 
citedly spoke of "the dawn of a new era" in which the 
stage was set for a communal realization of long-awaited 
changes and aspirations. 

And these were not empty words. Gradually both inter- 
nal and external transitions occurred — reaching into the 
very heart of the institution and its operations. Suddenly, 
student — faculty — administration lines of communica- 
tion were opened and the College, as a unified body, 
found a new sense of pride, a new vision of progress. 
Perhaps the most persuasive signal of change was evi- 
denced when a student at a basketball team reception 
publicly asked, "Who has the best president?" and Dr. 
Henry received a standing ovation.

^H eisure is also an integral part of a 

^m busy Leo-life. Early mornings, late 

^^^^^^f nights — it all usually blends in a 

^^^^^^r chaotic menagerie of academics, 

pleasure and sleep-weary gazes. There are always so 

many activities you'd like to join — a racquetball game, 

tennis match, bar trip — and numerous others you have 

no choice but to participate in (the unmentionables). 

Regardless of the route each individual chooses, there 
are countless avenues to explore in and about campus. 
Sailing on Lake Jovita, sunning at the pool, sneaking 
through the monastery (try it at midnight), are just a few 
"extracurriculars" popular among students. Moving 
around the communities surrounding Saint Leo can be an 
enjoyable experience as well — Tampa, Dade City, Ze- 
phyrhills, San Antonio — all provide ample opportunity 
for exploration. Essentially, the tranquil, yet exciting at- 
mosphere native to SLC is home to the sedentary scholar 
and adventurer alike.

R V& compromise. Living in residence 

if^^J A is generally a give-take relation- 
^^^ ^^^ ship between roommates, hall- 
flflb fl Hb mates, and the common masses. 
For many it can be a trying experience — but then who is 
accustomed to sharing space with dozens of unidentified 
life forms (including, in most cases, your roommate)? 

Despite the obvious drawbacks, certain subtle advan- 
tages often preserve the sanity of RH dwellers: Conve- 
nience (close to the bar, pool, and other important local- 
ities); Notariety (students arrive all the way from Europe 
to be educated at SLC; they must have heard of St. Ed's 
Hall); Entertainment (frequently a car alarm in the north 
parking lot); and, of course, New friends (the type your 
mother warned you about). 

Residential living is indeed a growth experience — an 
opportunity to gain familiarity with diverse personalities. 
Saint Leo just happens to be the ideal atmosphere for this 
life experimentation.

The Campus Union Board established a new prece- 
dence in entertainment with highlights which included 
comedy teams, computer portraits, musical groups, and 
guest speakers. Ronnie's disappeared; yet Ralph's and the 
Establishment gained popularity in its wake. In Tampa, 
"C-C's" was a frequent hang-out, as was the city itself, 
observing — absorbing the atmosphere which is unique- 
ly Leo-like. Whether sitting in an audience, watching 
television or listening to a band, the silent applause can 
always faintly be detected . . .

urely, education — in a liberal 
sense — involves the integration 
of many aspects of learning. Al- 
though physical awareness and 
social service are inseparable from a well-rounded edu- 
cation, scholastic achievement is the focus of college life. 
Excellence in education is not an easy goal to attain. It 
is a day-to-day affair — a constant battle to ignore the 
temptation to procrastinate in favor of immediate plea- 
sure. It involves sleepless nights, missed trips to the bar or 
weeknight parties, beautiful Saturdays spent in dreary 
study rooms, and a self-imposed "deaf ear" to the be- 
witching call of West coast beaches. 

This year, academics gained a new prominence as Dr. 
Henry took the helm of the college presidency. His firm 
support of scholastic excellence gave many serious stu- 
dents the incentive to continue to strive for knowledge.

^^^^^^^r let for frustration, a source for ex- 
tracurricular interests, and a sure cure for the "boredom 
blues." When asked for their thoughts about "breaking 
away" from academics, students responded in a variety of 
ways. Junior Maryellen Burke found that "taking a walk 
down to the lake or around the campus" helps to clear her 
mind. Senior Greg Cason answered the question, saying, 
"I grab my racquetball racquet and head for the courts." 
But not all activities are physically-oriented. Christina 
Colbert, a freshman, found that she liked to "call some- 
one." Senior Doug Latino offered a number of alterna- 
tives: "When I need a break, I take a walk, or eat. Some- 
times I write letters so I can stay 'in the groove' mentally. 
What matters most is that I do something I want to do."

Fish chowder and Swedish meatballs. Fiddles and guitars. Folk tales and 
dances. All these and more were integral parts of this year's Scandinavian 
cultural festival. Sponsored by the Humanities division and masterminded by 
Ms. Maura Snyder, Ms. Jacalyn Bryan, and Dr. Walter Poznar, the festival was 
an event that involved many of the organizations on campus. 

Of the different booths set up between Saint Francis and Saint Edward 
halls, the most popular were those offering Norwegian, Danish, and 
Swedish foods. There were also several exhibits that illustrated the var- 
ious aspects of Scandinavian life, performances of typical Scandinavian 
fairy tales (trolls included!), and folk dances. A number of students 
"dressed for the day" and added an air of authenticity to the event. 
Beneath the laughter and the fun, however, was a real opportunity for 
cultural education and appreciation.

Perhaps one of the most important 
features of the festival was the sense 
of community which it promoted. 
Different sororities, fraternities, and 
organizations were united in one ef- 
fort to provide a learning experience 
for Saint Leo students and for the 
local population as well. The result: 
a day filled with laughter, conversa- 
tion, friendship, and education.

Christmas in Florida is rarely white, but it is 
beautiful just the same. Nature shows another 
side of herself as the sky takes on a deeper blue 
and the sun shines with a different, "softer" 
light. The weather turns cool and dry, and it 
becomes easy to differentiate the "Northern- 
ers" (who wear shorts and sandals in Decem- 
ber) from the "Southerners" (who dress like 
Eskimos when the temperature hits below 50 
degrees). Jokes about these observations are 
only one sign of the festive spirit of the season.

Following the lines of the Scandina- 
vian festival, Ibsen's A Doll's House was 
chosen as the first theatric presentation 
of the new school year. 

The theatre was renovated during 
the rehearsals of the production; a new 
stage floor was installed, new house 
lights were hung, and reserved seating 
arrangements were prepared. Yet, de- 
spite the noise of construction and the 
ever-changing facilities, the cast and 
crew performed with professionalism 
and maturity.

For a few months this year, we feared 
we would lose Dr. Henry. However, im- 
mediate expressions of support for Dr. 
Henry from students, faculty, staff, board 
members, and members of the commu- 
nity resulted not only in a re-examina- 
tion of the issue, but also in greater rap- 
port between all levels of the College. 
Such unity fostered a new sense of fel- 
lowship and "family" within the Col- 
lege, and our combined prayers were an- 
swered — Dr. Henry is still with us. 

Dr. Henry touches the students: 

We admire, respect and indeed love 
Dr. Henry for making the words 'pride' 
and 'morale' a part of our everyday lan- 
guage. — John Kaddouri, in a letter to the 

Dr. Henry has encouraged us to reflect 
on troublesome matters with conscience 
and consideration, and to act with re- 
sponsibility and dignity. And he has nev-

dents, are the precious building blocks of 
Saint Leo College. — /ami McLaughlin, in

Working with Dan Henry is exciting, 
challenging, and fun and over the last six

He (Dr. Henry) encouraged us to 
dream about excellence and plan practi- 
cal means to attain it. He inspired our 
efforts and creativity to new heights. — 
Dr. Joseph Cernik, in a letter from the fac- 

Dr. Henry leads the way for change: 

Dr. Henry has initiated a feeling on 
campus which is one characterized by a 
sense of pride and excitement for Saint 
Leo College and its future. Through aca- 
demic enrichment, strategic planning 
and campus beautification, our college is 
experiencing the collegiate atmosphere 
which is an integral factor in promoting 
academic and spiritual enrichment need- 
ed for prosperity and growth. — Scott 

Woodward, in a letter to the trustees 

Transition is an important part of 
growth, and Saint Leo College was ex- 
periencing a positive progression toward 
spiritual and academic expansion. Dr. 
Henry was not a mere point in this expe- 
rience, but rather was and still is its 
guiding initiator. — Christine Cunning- 
ham, in a letter to the trustees 

Dr. Henry is community-oriented: 

We see him (Dr. Henry) as a fine exam- 
ple of a truly educated Christian and a 
dedicated leader whose vitality lends it- 
self to all segments of our community. 
Dr. Henry believes in community and so 
do we. We do not wish to see him go. — 
Petition signed by 992 of the 1065 on- 
campus students 

In his short tenure as President ... he 
has been almost universally acclaimed 
as being right for the job. He and his fam- 
ily really became part of the community

Pins like these were worn by faculty, staff,

force on this campus and the surround-

And he has united us:

"I've never seen the school come to-

For the first time in a long while, the 
students of Saint Leo College are united.

schools, I have never felt as much Chris- 
tian fellowship and spirit among stu- 
dents and staff as I do this year. The

In February, the Saint Leo Theatre pro- 
duced Crimes of the Heart. The first per- 
formance was a quiet one, but "word of 
mouth" — positive reactions — helped to 
pull audiences into the theatre for later 
performances. Those who were able to at- 
tend were delighted with the combina- 
tion of a "fresh" play and a new cast 

The final curtain had barely dropped on 
Crimes of the Heart when work began on 
the production of Schwartz and Tebelak's 
GodspeJJ. For a few members of the cast, 
then, there was no rest — no break — 
from theatre. (And the wear and tear of 
night after night practice on these indi- 
viduals became readily apparent.) Never- 
theless, when GodspeJJ opened in April, 
audiences enjoyed a fine, uniquely "Saint 
Leo" production.

Both the fall and spring dance concerts were 
comprised of a number of shorter routines that 
were balanced by a major dramatic work. In 
the fall, "Epitaph" — the story of Joan of Arc — 
was a most impressive combination of fine cho- 
reography, moody lighting, and well-rehearsed 
dancing. Performed in the spring, "Four South- 
ern Women" stole the show as it centered on 
four major characters from Gone With the Wind. 
Both concerts provided opportunities to dem-

Freshmen enter a new world 
and experience the inevitable 

Stage Fright 

Was it sunshine, sports or size that attracted 519 
freshmen to Saint Leo College this year? One new 
student contends that Saint Leo offered a friendly 
atmosphere and was easy to adjust to, while yet an- 
other claims to be more comfortable due to the 
school's small size. 

As a private, four-year liberal arts institution in 
Central Florida, Saint Leo combines all these positive 
attributes and numerous others. It annually attracts 
a wide variety of newcomers from far-away places 
such as Canada, Minnesota, Aruba and Bermuda and 
yet is still called "home" by a large quantity of Florid- 

The first time away from friends and family upon 
entering college can create a previously unexper- 
ienced sense of independence. For each freshman, 
college usually means studying, partying and meet- 
ing new people. In some cases, students have taken a 
positive advantage of their "new" freedom — one 
example is Greg Gerber of Washington, D.C., who 
states: "I enjoy being able to make my own decisions. 
I find that very important to me." But then again, not 
everyone accepts this distance between familiar life- 
style and the unknown. Mike Crockett, a freshman 
from Tallahassee, Florida, observes: "For me, being 
in college means being away from my family, and I 
don't particularly enjoy that." 

Despite the drawbacks, college is filled with fun, 
unforgettable days and involvement with extracurri- 
cular activities. Marcel Siroris, a sportsminded fresh- 
man, exclaims: "I've come all the way from Massa- 
chusetts to play ball!" and Eileen Rudden demon- 
strates her dedication, "I'm involved in Campus 
Ministry and plan to pledge as a fraternity little sis- 
ter." All these students and others realize that being 
an organization member can lead to some of the 
greatest lasting friendships of their lives. 

Overall, whether it's education or recreation, Saint 
Leo College has quite a diversity to offer its students. 
Keeping this in mind, the freshmen at SLC are strong- 
ly encouraged to get involved and make a difference. 
We look forward to spending the next four years to- 
gether, making the most of our college days by bask- 
ing in the sun, playing sports and enjoying life and 
friendship within our small school.

Throughout life, many different people actively engage in 
countless game forms. Emotional games, physical games and 
board games are a major focus in existence, especially during 
college years. The simplest contests may as easily be the most 
complex, for they challenge and expose us to that breathless 
entity — competition. 

Within each Saint Leo resident's room and on dozens of univer- 
sity campuses across the nation, wide-spread game fads climax as 
semesters come and go. Freshman Frank McFarland from Sani- 
bel Island, Florida, believes that"games are essentially physical 
or mental competitions conducted according to rules (or the lack 
thereof) with the participants in direct opposition to each other" 
(well said, Frank). 

Ultimately, whether its Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly or quarters 
at the local bar, gaming is a popular and inexpensive form of

What goes on beyond the classroom. 

A quiet stroll through the college mall. 
Sailing at dusk on Lake Jovita. Having a 
beer with good friends. Sleeping on your 
desk (and an open book) at midnight. 
Whether deep into a darkened dawn or be- 
neath the hot afternoon sun, Saint Leo stu- 
dents realize when its time to "take a 
break." Studying and classes usually occu- 
py a better portion of the day (and often the 
night as well), but everyone can sense the 
moment when nerves wear thin and brain 
cells beg for a nap. The campus, with its 
smooth breezes and soft lawns, tempt each 
student to "relax" with a warranted remov- 
al from the tensions and tribulations of aca- 

A simple walk suffices for many, reading 
below a heavy shade tree is remedy for oth- 
ers, and a few sports enthusiasts choose the 
chaotic rush of a good football game. Year- 
book photography editor and Honors stu- 
dent Jami McLaughlin, in a sleepy haze, 
murmurs: "the only times I can relax are 
when I'm in class or asleep . . . and I try not 
to allow these moments to occur simulta- 
neously." )unior Marianne Perlick, when 
asked for her favorite method of relaxation, 
reflects the view of a modern television au- 
dience: "To dream of a black Ferrari with 
Don Johnson in it."

Sophomores exit their 'freshman' status 
and move up to . . . 


The first year comes and goes. As that "freshman" 
feeling fades, so does the uncertainty surrounding 
college life and living. Sophomores are defined 
through denotation as "wise fools" — a dichotomy 
which suggests they possess the best of both worlds. 
No longer preyed upon for their naivete, but not yet 
elevated to senior status, second-year college stu- 
dents have relative freedom to experiment, progress, 
and develop as independent individuals. 

Approximately 156 sophomores flocked back to 
Saint Leo this fall, and about 50 transferred from 
other colleges and universities across the nation. 
Like the incoming freshmen, they are represented by 
a diverse accumulation of nationalities — a handful 
of Islanders, several European students, and a selec- 
tion of warm-blooded Floridians. 

This heterogenity is exemplified in academics as 
well, and the sophomore year is traditionally the 
"time to choose a major." Planning for a career sever- 
al years in the future may appear unnecessary, but 
more and more freshmen and sophomores are realiz- 
ing the practicality of this foresight. Just as basic 
studies requirements are checked off, new "major" 
subjects pop up quickly to refill the spaces. The soph- 
omore year becomes essentially a preparation for 
one's future as a "junior." 

Although the lukewarm comfort of being on the 
sidelines will not last forever, it offers a simple res- 
pite to the chaotic pace of college life. Sophomores 
who enjoy handling the spotlight must soon realize 
they may well be in front of it and moving slowly but 
surely up the center aisle.

An actor's only privacy 
is in his 


Whether it's Henderson, Saint Edward's, 
or up the hill at Marmion-Snyder, the dorm 
is considered a literal "home away from 
home." Dorm life offers students the oppor- 
tunity to develop responsibility and to ex- 
periment with independent living. By tak- 
ing up residence in a dormatory, individ- 
uals can experience freedom yet still retain 
the security of friends. 

The dorm is usually the first place to 
meet other people upon entering college, 
and resident hall staffs work continually to 
create a setting for strong social relation- 
ships. This leads to the initial word which 
comes to mind after dorm — "roommate." 
Living with a roommate is certainly inter- 
esting, especially for a person accustomed 
to having his/her own room. The main dis- 
advantage students cite to co-habitation is 
a lack of privacy — but most everyone 
learns to be sharing and considerate. Vicki 
Herma, a freshman residing in Snyder Hall, 
sums up her dorm "experience": "I never 
had to share a room at home, but having a 
roommate is great! Yes, there are times I 
like to have my space, but overall, I like 
living with a roommate."

Junior Chris Coble has a special interest in one particular 
building on Saint Leo campus: "I enjoy using the library to do my 
homework. It's a place to go when I want peace and quiet." 

Saint Leo's library is the largest in Pasco County, with more 
than 78,000 books, including a large variety of periodicals and 
newspapers. To facilitate students and faculty, it remains open 
seven days a week and daily average attendance often tops 400. 

The present structure was built in 1959 and covers an area in 
excess of 14,000 square feet. Early in the fall 1985, a new con- 
struction project was initiated which will considerably expand 
the existing space.

Juniors enter a period of 
extensive learning, training as . . . 


Junior year signals the turning point in a student's 
life; not only must a concentration be firmly decided 
upon (both "for the record" and in the individual's 
own mind), but upper level courses replace basic 
studies as the bulk of the semester's course load. 
Juniors find that they must meet stricter class re- 
quirements and more demanding specifications for 
research and study. As these courses progress, a stu- 
dent is better able to gauge his satisfaction in a cho- 
sen concentration. 

Despite warnings from "wise" seniors, members of 
the junior class often ignore the approaching final 
year and any plans which must be made to insure 
that post-graduate plans are feasible. In fact, the ju- 
nior year is still a period for dreaming and testing, a 
logical extension of the "middle-of-the-road" under- 
graduate approach. 

A majority of this fall's third year class were trans- 
fer students, bringing with them a host of experience 
from other well-traveled academic avenues. This 
knowledge, combined with personal self-assurance, 
allowed the juniors to give advice to their Fresh- 
men/Sophomore counterparts, and to prepare to 
capture the spotlight for a new performance — their 
debute as "seniors."

Resident Assistants are always 
in the shadows, awaiting the next . . . 


"You're always an R.A., day and night," concludes junior Eliza- 
beth Krivo, when asked to comment on the most important role 
of a Resident Assistant. Krivo, an English writing-track major, 
became an R.A. for the first time in the fall, 1985, because she 
"wanted to be as involved with student life as possible. It's very 
rewarding when people come in (my room) and just see me as 
someone to talk to, someone they can trust." 

Senior Moira Kelly, an Elementary and Early Childhood Edu- 
cation major, enters her third semester as an R.A. because of "the 
knowledge that I can help people. I had really good R.A.'s as a 
freshman, and it's important for me to just be available when 
new students need someone to talk to." Kelly agrees with Krivo 
that the most serious part of a Resident Assistant's job is "remem- 
bering I'm an R.A., before I think of anything else. Once you're an 
R.A., you're an R.A. That's 24 hours a day in and out of class." 

Krivo and Kelly are just two of 25 Resident Assistants who are 
responsible for the 900 + students living on the Saint Leo campus 
this year. The road to becoming an R.A. is a well-traveled but 
tedious one — all prospective applicants are carefully screened 
to insure they possess a mature attitude and are properly moti- 
vated. The process begins with a formal application supported by 
recommendations from an employer, faculty instructor, and cur- 
rent Resident Assistant. After a committee (composed of staff 
members and residents) evaluation, the final selection pool is 
chosen and these individuals proceed through a series of "office" 
interviews. Only after meetings with Sister Mary Clare Neuhofer 
(Director of Residential Life), the College Counselor, and possibly 
a Resident Director, is the application process complete. 

Moira Kelly believes the final reward is well worth a swing 
through the system: "It's an experience I'm thankful I had. It's 
taught me a lot about other people and especially myself."

There are many versatile methods which people apply to "get 
around" on campus. Cars, mopeds, walking, running, bicycles, 
and even skateboards are just a few of the transportative forms 
which students favor. 

Several residents of Marmion-Snyder are especially concerned 
about the route to and from class: "If I don't drive to class, I would 
have quite a hike." Junior Andy Phillips feels transportation is 
essential in college living, but for other reasons: "I don't think 
you need a car on campus because it really isn't that big, but if 
you want to go anywhere off-campus, its pretty much a necessi- 

When you really consider it, Saint Leo College has everything 
within walking distance — laundry mats, a bowling alley, tennis 
courts, swimming pool and especially — classrooms.

From Criminology to Beginning Swimming, academics and the 
classroom play a critical role in developing the well-rounded 
student. Because Saint Leo is a small, private institution, students 
are privileged to receive more individualized attention; rarely 
does the enrollment in any subject exceed 25. Above Top: The 
classroom can be a static experience, or it can involve more 
dedication, as demonstrated by this threatre workshop frequent- 
ed by Mr. Henrys stagecraft class. Above Bottom: Waterskiing — 
probably the class with the largest enrollment.

Spring Semester Additions 

Spring crawls slowly away from the few cold months of a 
Florida winter; it's a time of fresh starts and a new semester. The 
warmer weather fosters a rush of movement: sailing, Greek 
Week, tennis and beach fever. In the midst of this activity, Saint 
Leo also welcomes a host of students into its family — some 
entering college for their freshman semester, others returning to 
academia from the business world. 

The photographs grouped on these pages arrived too late for 
publication in the original underclassmen section, and, of course, 
the faces here are too important to be excluded. A few familiar 
individuals may be spotted; we suspect they skipped the fall 
session and are redeemed by appearing in this section. 

Regardless of reason, rhyme or motive, the spring semester 
additions have always been included as a type of reminder — an 
indication that Saint Leo College is constantly growing, changing 
and exhibiting inner direction. And besides, college experiences 
can be most interesting among the March azaleas and early April

A mischicvious pair: Dr. Terry 
Danner and the future Dr. 
Hudson Reynolds, Jr. discuss 
the "criminal mind." 










Buttons, bumperstickers and banners flooded the campus 
this year exclaiming the words "KEEP DR. HENRY". This was 
Dr. Henry's first year as President of St. Leo College. The ex- 
citement over the possibility of his departure started a full 
scale campaign to make sure St. Leo did not lose him. The 
Student Government Association began the battle by starting a 
petition that was signed by nearly every student in the college. 
As a direct result of the protests Dr. Henry stayed as our presi- 
dent, ending a long and steady battle between the administra- 
tion and the students. This victory represents the devotion the 
students felt for him after only a short time in office.

Cheerleaders are often the unsung 
heroes in any sports competition. 
Rarely are they praised for their per- 
formances, even though it is their 
spirit and pride (as expressed through 
voice and body) that help to spur a 
team onward to victory. Cheerleaders 
are managers in a sense; they orga- 
nize and channel the excitement of 
the crowd in a manner that supports 
the energy of the team players.

After a year's layoff, women's volley- 
ball came bouncing back. The Lady 
Monarchs, experiencing some under- 
standable first-year pains, racked up a 
respectable 11-12 record for the interim 
Coach Chris Thomas. 

The team, with the exception of one 
junior, was an all-freshman affair. But 
talent and desire overcame inexperi- 
ence as the spikers came up with some 
fine performances throughout the sea- 
son; in one instance, they took Troy 
State, ranked fourth in the Southeast Re- 
gion, into the last game of their match 
before falling, 15-12. • Bob Quarteroni

The highlight of the year for the 
men's soccer team, which had an 
overall record of 6-10-2, was its Sep- 
tember 1-0 victory over Florida 
Southern. That win was especially 
sweet because it was the first Sun- 
shine State Conference victory for the 
Monarchs in four years. 

Saint Leo, finishing 1-5 in league 
action, was an especially young team. 
Even the team leaders were under- 
classmen; freshman Jim Murdaugh 
tallied 24 points to lead the team 
while sophomores Jim Moran and 
Brian Mautel added 21 and 14 points, 

Goalie Darren Burchall, who al- 
lowed only 2.06 goals per game to op- 
ponents, was named Saint Leo's Ath- 
lete of the Month in October by his 
peers. * Bob Quarteroni

Saint Leo's men's basketball team roared 
loud and strong at the end of the season. 
The Monarchs, who finished 16-14 for the 
year, nearly walked off with Sunshine State 
Conference Tournament honors. Saint Leo 
stunned nationally-ranked University of 
Tampa 72-69 in the tournament playoffs be- 
fore losing a 73-66 thriller to Florida South- 
ern in the Conference Tournament champi- 
onship game. 

Senior Rodney Murray was chosen team 
M.V.P. and named to the All-Conference 
and All-Tournament teams. Junior Zan 
Hairston, Saint Leo's leading scorer, gar- 
nered First Team All-Conference honors. 
Also named to the All-Tournament Team 
were junior Jim Wilson and freshman Ron 

The team tied school records for victories 
in a year (16) and enjoyed its fourth straight 
winning campaign.

scribe the exploits of Sue 
Rogers, one of Saint Leo's 
premier student-athletes. 
Rogers, a Barbados native, 
showed her scholarly mus- 
cle by earning her B.A. in 
marketing in a mere three 
years. She showed her A + 
ability on the tennis courts 
where her stunning senior 
season (a 16-9 record and a 
Sunshine State Conference 
singles championship) 
earned her a spot in the 
NCAA tennis tournament in 
California in early May. Rog- 
er's first-round tournament 
loss did little to dim an ex- 
tremely bright season. 

And bright was the word 
for the squad as a whole. The 
women finished 12-11 on the 
year and an impressive sec- 
ond at the conference tour- 
nament, falling just short of 
champion Florida Southern. 

At the annual college 
sports banquet Sue Rogers 
was honored by being select- 
ed Saint Leo Female Athlete 
of the Year.

The men's tennis team 17-8 on the year, 
saved its best for the end of the year. The 
squad, ranked 10th in the South Region, 
finished an impressive third in the Sun- 
shine State Conference tournament. Rol- 
lins was the champ with 53 points. Florida 
Institute of Technology was second with 41 
followed by the Monarchs with 34 points. 

Saint Leo had two individuals finish sec- 
ond in the tournament. Sophomore Jack Ce- 
sare was a runner-up at No. 4 singles while 
the No. 3 doubles team of Rob Schultz and 
Greg Kennedy was also second. 

The Monarchs were third in four other 
events: Chris Cannon (No. 3 singles), Ken-

Triumph and Tragedy Strike the Heart of America . 


On January 28, 1986, the 
world watched with shock and 
horror as NASA's Space Shut- 
tle Challenger exploded short- 
ly after lift-off. Seven crew 
members lost their lives in the 
U.S. Space Program's fifty- 
sixth mission: Commander 
Francis Scobee, Pilot Michael 
Smith, Mission Specialist Ju- 
dith Resnik and Payload Spe- 
cialists Gregory Jarvis, Elli- 
son Onizuka, Ronald McNair 
and Christa McAulliffe. 

The Space Program, sup- 
ported and initiated by Presi- 
dent John F. Kennedy in the 
early 1960's, has continually 
represented a national chal- 
lenge, exhibiting an inspira- 
tion and courage to explore 

the unknown. Astronauts 
such as Alan Shepard, John 
Glenn, Neil Armstrong and 
Sally Ride (the first female to 
travel in space) have given rise 
to a new breed of American 

Yet from its earliest begin- 
nings, the Space Program has 
been at the center of contro- 
versy — a war between politi- 
cal, military and economic 
factions. To cope with these 
problems and to keep tax dol- 
lars flowing, NASA recently 
invited two members of Con- 
gress, Senator Jake Gam of 
Utah and Representative Bill 
Nelson of Florida, to join 
Shuttle missions. Additional- 
ly, the Citizen-in-Space ses- 

sion continued with the selec- 
tion of Concord, New Hamp- 
shire school teacher Christa 
McAulliffe. Despite the Chal- 
lenger tragedy, NASA has in- 
dicated that it still favors the 
introduction of civilians in 
space flight. 

Exploration of the skies is 
an important method of 
studying evolution and the 
universe. The individuals who 
disappeared with Space Shut- 
tle Challenger are an essential 
part of this research and are 
far from forgotten. They will 
always be a reminder of the 
human race's infinite determi- 


One small step 
for man, 
One giant leap 
for mankind!

. . . When you're as great as 
we are! This was the resound- 
ing cry of sports figures far 
and wide for the athletic sea- 
son 1985-86. 

In baseball, the Kansas City 
Royals captured a World Se- 
ries title over the St. Louis 
Cardinals, and Bret Saberha- 
gen (Royals' pitcher) was 
named Most Valuable Player. 

Football experienced a clas- 
sic Super Bowl season as the 
Chicago Bears defeated the 
weary New England Patriots, 
scoring 46-10. "The Refrigera- 
tor" Bear William Perry and 
his teammates cut a single en- 
titled "The Superbowl Shuf- 
fle" in order to raise money for 

underprivileged families. 

In tennis action, unseeded 
Boris Becker became Wimble- 
don's youngest champion at 
17 when he upset opponent 
Kevin Curren to win the 
Men's Single title. Becker is 
also remembered for dancing 
after the defeat, a movement 
named "Boris-Boogie" by en- 
thusiastic spectators. 

Basketball witnessed a L.A. 
Lakers NBA Championship 
over the Boston Celtics. The 
Laker's Kareem Abdul- Jab- 
bar demonstrated he was still 
a "Towering inferno" at age 38 
by winning MVP honors. 

The Edmont Oilers battled 
Philadelphia's Flyers in five 

games and prevailed to cap- 
ture hockey's Stanley Cup. 

The year in sports was an 
exciting yet restless one; tur- 
bulent affairs of the external 
world caused this uneasiness 
in stadiums and fields. 

However, it was also a time 
of victory — records were 
made, games won — a move- 
ment of familiarity and tradi- 
tion ... A special round of ap- 
plause is necessary to recog- 
nize all the athletes, whether 
professional or amateur, who 
participated in sports events 
all over the world in the 1985- 
86 season. Thus America tips 
its hat to Ty Cobb and draws 
Pete Rose into the spotlight. 


/ think most people will 
forgive me for breaking 
Ty Cobb's record. We 
both loved to hit and 
hated to lose.

gling his 4,192nd hit to

In 1985, Americans com-

government in Vietnam. The 
focal point of attention was 
the Vietnam Memorial in 
Washington, D.C. Inscribed 
with the names of more than 
58,000 dead or missing sol- 
diers, the memorial was a 
means by which to begin a 
healing process for all Ameri- 
cans. In addition, new, con- 
certed efforts were begun to lo- 
cate the identify soldiers

A new sense of national

Natural and man-made di- 
sasters figured prominently in 
the progression of 1985-86. 
Rumors attributed the in- 
creasing devastation to every- 
thing from a full moon to the 
return of Halley's Comet. The 
senseless waste of human life 
and property had many ques- 
tioning the proximity of Ar- 
meggedon — and seeking 
those elusive answers. 

What would have been an 
otherwise serene September 
in Mexico City was a month of 
tragedy. As many as 20,000 in- 
dividuals lost their lives in a 
series of unprecedented earth- 
quakes. Few in the metropoli- 
tan area escaped the first 

quake, which registered 8.1 on 
the Richter scale. A second 
quake shook the city with an 
almost equivalent force: 7.5. 

Terrorism flew the friendly 
skies in June when a Trans 
World Airlines jet was hi- 
jacked in Athens, Greece. The 
Shiite group held 39 hostages 
captive for 17 days. 

1985 was also the worst year 
for air traffic fatalities. When 
a Delta jetline crashed near 
Dallas in August, 137 people 
were killed and over 35 in- 

The high seas were no safer 
than the skies in this rather 
turbulent year. Four Palestin- 
ian terrorist hijacked the Ital- 

ian cruise liner Achille Lauro 
while it completed a Mediter- 
ranean voyage. After the ship 
was released, the Egyptian 
government agreed to return 
the hijackers to the PLO. 
However, the group was inter- 
cepted by American jets as 
they departed Egypt and re- 
turned to Italy to stand trial. 
Despite the trials and tribu- 
lations of the year, most situa- 
tions were resolved peaceably 
and with some semblance of 
justice. Applause must be re- 
served for those who served, 
and even possibly died, de- 
fending the free world. 

?9 n 

A sequence of 
earthquakes rumbled 
through Mexico City in 
September, killing 
thousands and leaving 
numerous others homeless. 

A Delta airliner, en 
route to L.A., crashed near 
Dallas in August. Pilot 
error and wind shear were 
apparently responsible for 
the accident. 

The Achille Lauro, 

hijacked by terrorists, 
returns safely to port. 
During the event, the 
captors boasted, "There's 
no shortage of passengers 
to kill."

On the "top of the heap," 
seniors stand ready to 
take on new responsibil- 
ities and pressures. But 
there is something that 
separates seniors from 
students in other classes. 
As one faculty member 
observed, "They move 
differently — they speak 
differently. I taught them 
as freshmen and, when I 
see them now, Fm amazed 
at the maturation that has 
taken place. Something 
happened!" To be sure, 
the senior year stands as a 


special marker in the 
growth of a lifetime.

On Saturday, April 26, some 396 
Saint Leo seniors marched from the 
Abbey Church to the Marion Bowman 
Activities Center for one final college 
ceremony. Along the route there were 
last-minute adjustments to caps and 
gowns, whispered pre-congratulations, 
and a general air of expectancy. 

The ceremony itself marked the 
"new era" begun this year. It was a spe- 
cial occasion for Dr. M. Daniel Henry, 
who presided over his first Saint Leo 
graduation class. Graduates, too, were 
pleased that this president — who had 
filled them with faith, trust, and pride 
— would be the one to present the cov- 
eted degrees.

The John I. Leonard General Excellence 
Award was presented to Michael Lad- 
wig, and Helene Colon received the Ab- 
bot Marion Bowman Activities Award. 
From the R.O.T.C. program, Robert Ban-

Saint Leo Vice President 

Dr. Robert Ackerman, vice president for Student Affairs, 

traded his job at Saint Leo after 11 years for a position at 

the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. The love and 

dedication Dr. Ackerman had for the college and students 

made his decision a difficult one. However, the challenge 

and opportunity of the new position compelled him to 

move on. Dr. Ackerman was as well-loved as he was 

dedicated to the hundreds of students that came under his 

care. We will all remember him and wish him well with 

his future.
